A competent longboarder is one of the most graceful things you can ever watch, the drop knee cut backs, the cross stepping and the nose riding, are entrancing and have a style that just isn’t seen on a shortboard. So when you put two accomplished longboarders together you are in for a mesmerising treat and todays featured video shows Tommy Witt and Corey Colapinto laying on a masterclass of stylish longboard surfing.
Sometimes sharing a wave and sometimes going solo, these two surfers ooze class as they weave their way through the crowds on a waist high wave on an average day in California. The crossovers and tricks they effortlessly pull off are done with such a degree of ease the two are as in tune as synchronised swimmers. Sharing a wave with someone you can read and trust is a buzz and if you get the chance is something you should try.
The video can be seen below this article, a perfect escape for this blustery wet day we are suffering in the UK and after watching there is a good chance you will be on eBay hunting down a longboard for yourself! Do you find competent longboarding a joy to watch and what do you think of the talent of Tommy Witt and Corey Colapinto?
